is it normal fo there to be a little white on tonsils
Hi, thank you asking Healthcare Magic. It is not normal. It is probably a type of tonsillitis called Acute Rheumatic Fever. If it is not well treated, it can lead to complications at the level of your heart that might eventually need surgery. I would suggest you see a doctor for proper assessment and management. I hope that answers your query. I wish you good health
